On a daily basis, migrants are crossing the Mediterrenean Sea in the hope of finding a better and safer life in Europe. The Last of Us is a meditative movie on those who are not able to reach their destination. After the nocturnal assault on a group of migrants, a sub-Saharan man ends up alone in the desert. Hoping to escape to Europe by himself, he steals a little, dumpy boat. However, the boat breaks down in the middle of the sea. He returns ashore and hides in a forest, where he gradually becomes one with his surroundings. The mythical atmosphere of the movie allows for multiple interpretations. Does the film portray the fate of those who are forgotten or is the spectator confronted with the vision of a dying man?
